Date: 28-29 July 2014

In Malaysia, the Muslims celebrate the start of the month of Syawal by having open houses for their family and friends. Guests can enjoy a variety of traditional Malay cuisine and mouth-watering selection of local delicacies.

During this joyous celebration, it is also customary for them to wear their traditional Malay attires. Another popular practice is the giving of “duit raya”, money gifted to children, elders or to the poor in little green packets.
